“Remember Me”

Remember me,
Though I have to
say goodbye
Remember me,
Don’t let it make you cry
For ever if I’m far away,
I hold you in my heart.
I sing a secret song to you
Each night we are apart.
Remember me,
though I have to travel far
Remember me,
each time you hear
a sad song
Know that I’m with you
The only way that I can be
Until you’re in
my arms again
Remember me…

Love Granny
